    Well, I think we can expect some new series in the next few years more likely than S mk3 On the other hand there is no reason to change something when its really good. But I am sure that Alon Wolf has head full of ideas

    Re: Magico S5 mk2

    When I was at Magico a couple of months ago to hear the S7/S5 comparison I asked Alon if there would be an S5 MK2, and he momentarily paused and said "You know I can't talk about future plans" (or something to that effect). Anyway, I didn't see anything in the article about cross over upgrade, or being able to upgrade a current S5. Even more important, what is the price. A better (assumed) speaker at the same price is ideal, and would keep an upgrade price lower.

    The S5 Mk II in MCast finish MSRP is $38K. There are no current plans for upgrading existing S5's to Mk II.

    After listening to the S7's for two weeks, we ordered a pair of S5 Mk II yesterday which will arrive in January.

    Don't understand the $30K more? The S5 Mk II is $38K with similar but not identical tweeter and midrange and less one woofer and each S5 Mk II's cabinet weighs 80 lbs less than an S7 that cost $20K more than the S5MK II. I know for sure that the S7's are competitive at $58K in the marketplace and am expecting/guessing that the S5 MK II's to be competitive at $38K.

    Re: Magico S5 mk2

    It will be interesting to see just how similar the midrange and tweeter are to the S7.
